 The Portland couple whose buy-a-pair, donate-a-pair prescription eyewear business has produced a 


nationwide splash are branching out into stunner shades. 


Kyle and Shu-Chu Yamaguchi, founders on the 141 Eyewear company profiled in The Oregonian this past year, recently 


launched LOOK/SEE, a nonprescription sunglass company using a stylish twist.

More on the couple: When they talked with The Oregonian recently, this company had just become profitable. Now, Shu-Chu is quitting her job for optician to
